Bollywood-Nollywood Romance 'Namaste Wahala' Coming To Netflix For Valentine's Day

Namaste Wahala, starring Ruslaan Mumtaz and Ini Dima-Okojie, will debut on Netflix on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14.

Netflix Naija tweeted the trailer, which shows a Nigerian woman (Dima-Okojie) and an Indian-Nigerian man (Mumtaz) falling in love, much to the surprise and shock of their families.

Shadow And Act covered the film in 2020, when director Hamisha Daryani Ahuja shared more about her film to CNN.

“I am Indian but I have lived in Nigeria my whole life,” she said to the outlet. “Everyone loves Bollywood and Nollywood, so I thought, ‘How is it that no one has done a love story between the two?'”

“…I wanted [the film] to be completely accurate,” she continued. “I wanted both cultures to be portrayed the same, that no culture was above the other.”
